Teeling Irish Single Grain Whiskey Released In US

23rd February 2015
Teeling launch their unique Irish Single Grain whiskey into the American market.

The innovative bunch at the Teeling Whiskey Company have already released their award winning Teeling Small Batch Rum Cask finished Irish whiskey to critical acclaim in the US and they have now announced they are now launching their new Teeling Single Grain Irish whiskey into the American market.

As you will probably already know the US whiskey industry is known for its corn/grain based whiskey but you may not know the current world champion in this whiskey category doesn't come from the US, it comes from Ireland. To be more precise it is bottled by the Dublin based Teeling Whiskey Company.

The release of the Teeling Single Grain whiskey is sure to help drive the selection and breadth within Irish whiskeys at a time of growing interest in the United States for more innovative, unique and flavoursome Irish expressions.

Teeling Single Grain is produced using a very unique maturation process fully maturing the whiskey in Californian red wine barrels. The whiskey is made by combining unique ingredients, with maize/corn dominating and uses modern column distillation to produce the whiskey, which is exceptionally clean and smooth with a touch of sweetness.

Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented, "It’s a little known fact that the majority of Irish whiskey sold is actually Grain whiskey so we feel it is interesting to have expressions of Single Grain whiskey in its own right. Our Teeling Single Grain is representative of our aim to help drive the expansion of the Irish whiskey category through unique bottlings and expressions."

The new whiskey has not gone unnoticed since it was first released. The Teeling Single Grain Irish whiskey was recently awarded World’s Best Grain Whiskey at the World Whiskies Awards for 2014. First held in 2007, the World Whiskies Awards, run by Whisky Magazine, search for the very best whiskeys in the world. This competition saw more than 300 whiskeys put through their paces with three rounds of rigorous tastings, to win the coveted title of the "World's Best".

The Teeling family whiskey heritage dates back to distilling in Dublin in 1782 and Walter Teeling who set up a distillery in Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties. Jack and his brother Stephen, Sales & Marketing Director, are just the latest generation of Teelings involved in the Irish whiskey industry. While initially starting out as an Independent bottler their aim is to bring Teeling Whiskey home by establishing the first new whiskey distillery in Dublin in over 125 years.
